LAUTECH: ASUU, SSANU reject one-month pay



The Academic Staff Union of Universities and other workers unions at the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso, have rejected the plan by the school’s Governing Council to pay workers only one month’s salary out of the 12 months arrears they are being owed.

The Chairman of the Joint Action Committee of the university, Alhaji Muraina Alesinloye, who led workers to the meeting held between the JAC and the Governing Council, said the workers insisted that the university should pay at least three months’ salaries.

The Chairman of the Governing Council of the university, Prof. Oladapo Afolabi, who is a former Head of Service of the Federation and was represented at the meeting by a member of the council, Prof. Olaide Adedokun, was quoted to have said that the council had approved the payment of one month salary to all workers through cheques.

However, Alesinloye told Punch correspondent on the telephone that the JAC, which comprised the Senior Staff Union of Universities, the Non-Academic Staff Union and National Association of Academic Technicians, also said their members would not collect their salaries via cheques. They insisted that the salaries should be paid into individual bank accounts.
